WE ARE ENGAGED!!! I´m sure there is a more tactful way of saying it, but I am seriously so happy right now, I don´t know how to hold it in! Pablo really did surprise me too!
He and I had decided to spend New Year´s Eve at my house (well, the house where I live) and cook dinner together and just enjoy a relaxing evening. Here you have to eat dinner around 11 pm so we had buffalo wings and potatoes with Chilean style salads. Dinner turned out really nice and we finished washing the dishes before midnight. We had just turned on the TV to watch the fireworks and countdown to midnight and were enjoying the last few seconds of 2008 when it all happened! Pablo looked at me and said, Año nuevo, vida nueva... (New year, new life) and pulled out of his pocket a ring! I couldn´t believe it. I just started crying and he did too and then he asked me to be his wife.
I am so grateful for Pablo in my life. He quickly has become my best friend who I can share everything with. He is so patient with me, even when I´m tired, complaining about Chilean things or upset. He treats me better than I deserve most the time and he does so much for me. I´m so excited to soon become his wife and be able to be sealed to him for time and all eternity! Here are a few pictures from dinner, the ring and after he asked me!
